Re: Ludwig 75th Anniversary "Eagle" Kit for Sale on Ebay-Big Beat Configuration

Well...I don't like the eagle (pigeon) inlay very much, either...but, these are the types of drums that end up being the super collectible one day and end up on some future equivalent of the...

Re: Ludwig 1930's Rope Tension Drum ?

My thought is that the drum was probably made specifically for the army and that's why it's not in the old catalogs....? In other words, it wasn't offered to the public. I dunno...

Re: Round Badge Gretsch Without A Muffler

I think those snare beds were cut by Ray Charles.

Re: Slingerland Stage Band

We would need to see pictures in order to make any kind of evaluation.

Re: Ringo's Hello, Goodbye mini Kit

Wow! I love these mini kits!

I had no idea these existed and I also had never noticed the mini kit from Ringo's Sgt. Pepper's era special appearance, either. So thanks to all for the education!

Re: Identify This Double Kick Pedal

Opinions? The fact that there is no branding anywhere suggests that it's a generic something-or-other probably made in an overseas factory. I dunno...Pearl subsidiary, maybe? *shrugs*

Re: A cry for help-Can NOT tune 80s Tama superstar 8x14 Birch

Jeeez! I remember the "Throwoff Wars" of the early 2000's -when everyone was focusing a lot of energy on designing a "better" throw off. It was the Nickel Drumworks one that started it....and then,...

Re: Zildjian 30" ride cymbal

My cousin had one...It was crazy big and looked really out of place on a drum set. I asked him about it after years and years and he said that he pawned it for some quick cash. I think these things...

Re: What Ludwig Kit Do I Have?

The initial post had nothing to do with how the drums sound, as far as I understood. The question had to do with whether or not the assemblage of drums in question was a named configuration or not....

Re: question on Ludwig Standard

I wish I could see that set again. It was back in the mid 70's and he traded them in for a brand new Blue Vistalite kit. I haven't kept in touch with him. I vaguely remember the interiors of that...

Re: question on Ludwig Standard

This. Standards have been known to sport Classic lugs. A friend of mine had Ruby Strata kit with Classic lugs.

Re: What Ludwig Kit Do I Have?

Fair enough. Thanks for the clarification. Well....I don't know what your assemblage of drums started out as. I don't know of a named configuration that started out with a virgin bass drum...

Re: What Ludwig Kit Do I Have?

There is no name for your shell pack. It wasn't a company-named configuration as it is. If it was rewrapped, then the 22" likely isn't a virgin from the factory and I would guess that a good look at...

Re: Just about as thin as a 22" ever gets

Hey Mark...It's not me or my cymbal. It's just a random video that I found on YouTube. I was researching the Dream Bliss line awhile back for a friend of mine who was getting his first kit. There are...

Re: Another eBay Bargain

When a single drum is isolated from everything else and looked at under a microscope (so to speak) then there will be differences. But by its very design and nature, the snare drum is a staccato...

Re: Another eBay Bargain

Well, in all honesty, I like simple snare drums, too. Practically speaking, there's really no reason to want all the "stuff" that a Gladstone snare drum is capable of in any other context outside of...

Re: Another eBay Bargain

An Acrolite will hold more than a candle to the sound of a snare drum designed for orchestral work. Anyone who says that an Acrolite is wimpy doesn't know much about snare drums. Like it or not, the...

I HIGHLY recommend you all check out a movie called "Who the !@#$%^ is Jackson Pollock?" in order to get a better idea of how the art world works. And, again, that's what this drum is, at this point...

Re: Just about as thin as a 22" ever gets

It's basically a big crash cymbal that you can ride on if you do it lightly. I think it's a really nice cymbal and I could see it being applied to a quiet jazz gig. I like it. EDIT: This isn't me or...
